Worldwide the cost of shipping has increased by approximately 7 times over (700%).
NZPOST is our courier of choice, and they have also necessarily increased their prices as a follow on from international cost increases. View this page to read their questions page.
We also use cardboard or Kraft paper packing which costs more, but is kinder to the environment. We do try to use compostable or recyclable bags wherever possible.
We have also had to increase our shipping cost by $1 (approx 7%) as a small contribution to what we are now paying for shipping and handling costs.
